Microblading is the new craze that promises to shorten your morning beauty routine. Women all over the western world are embracing the trend to have perfectly shaped and filled eyebrows. But while this semi-permanent godsend has people raving, an article by popsugar warns potential microbladers of some of the things that you should know before undergoing the procedure.
- The blade is uncomfortable
While your technician should numb your skin, popsugar reports that you will feel the blade and it may even feel like tiny paper cuts! The blade can also leave you feeling sore and extremely irritated once the numbing cream wears off.
- It’s permanent
It’s important to remember that your microbladed brows will last for a few years. Microblading involves temporarily tattooing your brows into shape, so be aware that you may not like the results.
- You can’t wash your eyebrows for a week
Like any tattoo, your cuts need time to heal. It’s important to avoid covering them with water otherwise the process will be delayed and you won’t love the results.
- There should be a second appointment
Second appointments are crucial for your technician to touch up any missed areas. Often during our first appointments, we may experience redness or swelling making it difficult for technicians to fully complete the procedure.
Microblading can often be an expensive and uncomfortable way to maintain your brows, however many women opt for the procedure claiming that it’s totally worth it. If you’re considering the treatment, be sure to do your research on the technician you’re choosing.
